This Memorial Book was written by former residents of Czestochowa,
Poland. Some who left the town before the war wrote articles and
essays about the rich Jewish life in town: the people, the dreamers,
the doers, the ultra-religious, the secular, the Zionists, the
socialists…The various institutions in town, the charities and the
help societies for the needy.

This book contains many first-hand accounts and personal remembrances
of the survivors and emigrees from these towns and serves at a fitting
memorial to these destroyed Jewish communities and in addition bears
witness to their destruction.

For the researchers, this book contains a wealth of both genealogical
and cultural information that can provide us with a picture of the
environment our ancestors left when they left the town.

Consider this book as a Purim gift to a special relative.
